Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle Corp. (and the world's fifth-richest person, according to Forbes) is a big basketball fan. In April, it was reported he had an interest in buying the Los Angeles Clippers NBA team. An associate told the Wall Street Journal, for example, that Ellison has basketball courts on at least two of his yachts and shoots hoops on the open water. To retrieve errant shots that go overboard, Ellison hires a ballboy in a powerboat to trail the yachts.
